    My angel fish has been laying on the gravel bed.she will briefly come up to eat but then heads back to the bottom.shes approximately 1year old.ive tested the water and everything is perfect.however,i did notice somehow the heater has been switched to 78.could this be the problem?

    Hi and welcome.

    What are the parameters of your tank? What was the temperature before? What size is the tank and what else is living in it?

    If she can still swim enough to get food then keep hoping but she really doesn't look good. Have you seen any aggression between the angels?
